This verse was written in response to the Photo Challenge #315 hosted at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and Fandango’s FOWC challenge for the day: Circle. The first challenge is to use the photo prompt as an inspiration for a poem or short story. FOWC challenge is all about using the given word in a post. Thank you, NEKNEERAJ and Fandango for hosting these challenges.
